Skoda has unveiled the next-generation of its Greenline models
1 October 2010

Skoda has unveiled the next-generation of its low CO2 Greenline models at the Paris motor show.

The new line sees two reworked engines – a 103bhp 1.6 TDI and a 74bhp 1.2 TDI – with stop-start and braking energy-recuperation technology fitted.

The Fabia Greenline and the Fabia Estate Greenline, both fitted with the 1.2 engine, now emit 89g/km of CO2.

The Roomster compact MPV, which will also use the 1.2 unit, has CO2 emissions of 109g/km, which Skoda claims is the best in class.

The Greenline models of the Octavia, Yeti and Superb use the 1.6 engine. The hatchback version of the Octavia will emit 99g/km of CO2 and the estate variant will emit 109g/km of CO2.

The Yeti and the Superb Estate have not been previously included in the Greenline range.

The Greenline version of the Yeti emits 119g/km of CO2, will accelerate from 0-62mph in 12.1 seconds and has a top speed of 109mph. Both the Superb and the Superb estate will emit 114g/km of CO2.

A road tax free Octavia? Wow. I tell you what, if you told someone to start from scratch & design the perfect family hatchback, I think they would struggle to beat it- its basically a Focus/Golf size but with a bigger boot, reliable, smartly styled, doesnt try to be anything its not, its a good, honest, family car. To manage to break the 100g/km tax threshold is an impressive achievement. To be honest I cant really see any reason not to buy one. God Im sounding old now! lol :D its true though. Theyre picking up the market Volvo are stupidly abandoning (the new V60 estate R-Design being particulary un-Volvo like) which is the market of the thinking persons sensible buy. Even the residuals are good nowadays.

In fact, yes Ill say it, I think give me the choice between a same spec Focus or Octavia for the same price, I would pick the Octavia any day of the week.

currently a happy owner of a Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin :)

You are not alone on this . Yes people will say its boring and doesnt handle but its a family car so as far as I am concerned it is the best out there on value reliability and metal for your money .

114g/kg for something the size of a Superb estate is quite remarkable really. With that engine it'd be a bit of a slug though...

Brilliant range of cars.

Look past the badge (is it really that much of a problem any more?) and you have a very dependable car indeed.

Ill stock my neck out and say that Skodas are possibly the most reliable cars on the road today

[quote andrepaul999]Ill stock my neck out and say that Skodas are possibly the most reliable cars on the road today [/quote] My daughter bought a year 2000 Fabia 1.4 mpi in 2003 with 15k miles and sold it last December with 74k miles. It still drove well and looked good but it was not without faults during her ownership. In 2004 it failed the MOT and had the steering rack and inner track rod joints replaced. In 2007 the head gasket was replaced and head skimmed. In 2008 play in steering again, had inner track rod joints replaced. It also had a low water buzzer that beeped at you most of the last five years of ownership that dealers thought could be either the ecu faulty or a poor connection that was deemed uneconomic to fix. Then there were problems with the boot release sometimes, the rear washer failed and the glove box lid catch broke. So overall not fault free but it was a nice car. She replaced it with a six month old Honda Civic 2.2 diesel as she wanted more reliability and performance, only time will tell if the Honda has less faults develop.

Are those emissions figures accurate ?

Surely a Superb Estate would be worse than a Yeti 114 v 119g/km or is it all down to drag factors . The estate must be a lot heavier too .

You're correct it is a good figure for a car of that size. However, these low powered eco models do well in the lab tests but tend to do badly in 'real world' situations where the engine has to work hard just to move the thing.

I doubt the mpg figures most people get won't come anywhere near those claimed. I would suggest that the 2.0tdi, with the eco-tweaks would get better real world mpg figures.
